Events and festivals are an important element of the tourism offering, and an opportunity to increase tourist flows and offer a variety of entertainment opportunities for local residents and tourists, even outside seasonal tourism. In the Adriatic area, there are different events that attract thousands of people and, in turn, have a positive impact on the local economy. At the same time, however, these large gatherings produce an increase of water and energy consumption, together with a waste of food and various materials. Therefore, it must be stressed that events and festivals produce negative effects, too. A sustainable tourism policy can be achieved with the adoption of “green” actions to lower the negative impact on the environment caused by large gatherings, and to transform the waste originated by tourist flows into a new resource for local communities both from a social and economic point of view. The key to transforming waste into resource is to lower the waste produced at its source and to strengthen the recycling chain. The project indicates zero waste in festivals and events as o goal to reach. To this aim, ICT is a precious tool: ICT is considered by the project as a strategic support to face the negative impact of tourist flows by providing tools to public and private actors that organize, manage events and festivals. The Zero Waste project offers the opportunity to create a network of existing events and festivals in the Adriatic area, thanks to the adoption of green solutions through the use of ICT. Zero Waste exploits the results of experiences carried out by some of the partners on the reduction of waste in economic activities, and aims to benchmark the best practices with other partners – methodologies and actions included. Zero Waste is also a new cultural approach that, through the use of ICT, may favor the creation of new jobs and new skills in the recycling chain in the partners’ countries.
The project aims to create a “Zero Waste” Web-based network of events and festivals with a low impact on the environment. The assumption is to develop a jointly used ICT infrastructure to match environmental and tourist indicators with a new method for communities’ involvement and good practice solutions in the organization and management of events/festivals.
